You'll have to check with your DMV for vehicle requirements. You'll need approved tires, horn, mirrors, head-/tail-lights, reflectors, and maybe turn signals. They'll know the forms you'll need.

In Canada, if it has a RUM (restricted use motorcycle) tag, which yours does, it's never going to be street legal. The plaque under the triple clamps on the frame will say either Restricted use, competition only, or Motorcycle. Only bikes that say motorcycle can be registered for street use now.
That said, most registries in alberta will register your bike no matter what, but if you get stopped and they look at the ID card on the bike you're screwed no matter how legal the bike is in all other areas.
Also, for riding with a learners, it needs to be under 50cc, if you can find a DT50, from the early 90's, you might be able to ride that, and they are still way cooler than a scooter

I'm pretty sure it changed in the last two years. That was definitely the case, and I believe that bikes currently registered are grandfathered in, but new bikes are only legal if they have the RIV tag to show it.
You're correct though, that if a cop is looking for reasons to ticket you, there's a catch-all law that all original equipment must be functioning. That means if your bike had signal lights, mirrors, guages etc it's illegal to take them off. Most won't prosecute you if you have a spark arrestor and head/tail light off road, but it's still in their power if they want to.
But on road, there's not a way to legalize an offroad bike anymore
